After becoming director of Production of the International Festival of Mérida in 1990, she worked on different independent productions, prominent among which was La Fiesta Barroca, organised as part of the Madrid Capital of Culture events. In 1995 she was appointed Director of Production of the Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico directed by Adolfo Marsillach.
